a wonderful world

March 5 - March 14, 2020

This production has been postponed until further notice.

World premiere.  Original book by Aurin Squire. Directed by Christopher Renshaw.

Relish in the music. Meet the wives who shaped the man. Witness the story of a legend.

A world-premiere musical about jazz legend and singular American icon Louis Armstrong, featuring songs recorded and made popular by Armstrong, and original book by Aurin Squire, the multi-talented Opalocka-raised playwright and TV writer (This is Us, The Good Fight), and co-author of Confessions of a Cocaine Cowboy. A Wonderful World, traces Armstrong’s odyssey, the musical genre he helped define, and the complex history of race in America, from the birth of jazz in Armstrong’s native New Orleans to international stardom and the Civil Rights era. Squire focuses his musical drama through the prism of the women in Armstrong’s life. Directed by Drama Desk winner and Tony nominee Christopher Renshaw. Music arranged by Annastasia Victory and Michael O. Mitchell.
